26: Coincidence Or What?

Posted by ridor9th on April 29, 2008

15 years ago, a tornado touched down in Colonial Heights, Virginia — destroyed Wal-Mart.  Few were killed and the scores were injured.

That destroyed building eventually was converted into Sam’s Club as Wal-Mart moved about few hundreds yards south into a new building.  Between Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club emerged another shopping center contained Target and Best Buy.

However, in 1993, I was pissed off at the local television stations for failing to provide captions during the breaking news of a possible tornado in the vicinity — Richmond Times-Dispatch interviewed me and published an entry which embarrassed three local stations — WWBT, WTVR and WRIC.

Fast forward to today, a tornado just visited Target and Best Buy where 18 people were injured.  That is surreal because it is less than few hundred feet away from Sam’s Club where it was destroyed in 1993!

Meanwhile, only two of three TV stations provided the live captions the whole time — WRIC and WWBT.

Shame on WTVR.

On other hand, see what happened if you protest and do something about it instead of begging them to provide something critical, eh?   Think about it!

Cheers,
